            guimaker is a command line tool for creating graphical user interfaces
(GUI) in Scilab.

The GUIs are based on the available uicontrol objects in Scilab. 

guimaker() can be used either for generating GUIs within programs, or it can be
used for creating Scilab source code which serve as a starting point for
more advanced programming of GUIs.

menumaker() has been added as a frontend for the scilab command uimenus(). Its
purpose is to add systems of menus to a figure using a similar input definition
as guimaker. 

Changes in version 1.6:
 * Minor bug fix to guimaker() related to localized versions of Scilab, thanks
to Ihor Rokach.

guimaker() demo doesn't work on Scilab 5.3.3 x64.

It looks like it can't find the function apifun_checktype. 
Please verify that the apifun_toolbox is installed.

Hi, i thimk GUI maker would be a nice tool, if it where something like labview, where you 
can post the different types. 

A Tab oriented window would be also nice.

Hi, I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "like labview, ...".

A Tab oriented windows would be nice, but guimaker is limited by the objects/Styles
provided by the uicontrol() function.
